PokerStars: Virtual Throwable Objects Available In Italy

Players on PokerStars Italy can now throw objects at each other by clicking on the flying “horseshoe” icon available next to their screen name and selecting the item from a drop-down menu.

Players can throw a rose, a horseshoe, a fish and a cream pie at opponents, and they come with sound effects. Players can drag the object, aiming with a crosshair, to throw the item of their choice at any seated player.

As reported on Poker Industry PRO, the rose and horseshoe are unlocked for all players and have a “cool down” timer to prevent overuse. Players must complete a challenge to be able to unlock the fish and pie.

Take a look below.
